Wendy W Fok
Founder / Director of WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC
After a whirlwind tour of some of the top educational and vocational schools in the world, Wendy Fok earned a Master’s degree in architecture and certification of urban policy and regional planning from Princeton University’s School of Architecture. After initially working on interior architecture and the design of commercial stores, Fok set about mastering projects to change cities and landscapes on a much grander scale. With a knack for using materials, context and formal approaches in architecture, she aims to produce sustainable planning with progressive designs in the built environment. With notable projects such as the Opera Pavilion in Munich, in collaboration with Austrian firm Coop-Himmelb(l)au, Fok scored herself a Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award in 2009.
